Erin and Paul review two versions of the same story of unfaithful wives, double-crossing hitmen, and bodies that just won't stay dead. First: BLOOD SIMPLE, Joel and Ethan Coen's 1984 debut, starring Dan Hedaya as the owner of a Texas roadhouse who hires a sleazy private eye to kill his wife and her love; then, A WOMAN, A GUN, AND A NOODLE SHOP, director Zhang Yimou's slapstick 2009 remake, which transplants the action to a remote Gobi Desert noodle emporium in feudal China. Ceiling fans or paper fans: which will prevail?
Plus: our quick takes on NURSE 3D, MAN BITES DOG, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, and GAMBIT.
